Just got the strings in the mail today. Put a white one on a MYY avocado and a pink one on a pink CLYW compass.
First impressions and some notes:
These are sorta-stiff polyester strings that are about the same thickness as some ziplines, and a teensy bit thicker than buddah xl, and definitely thicker than anonymous strings. While stiff, they’re also soft like most poly strings tend to be. Because of that, I don’t really see any issues with string burn that I’d expect with a rougher string.
I’m not super good at throwing yet (~4 months in), but I can pretty easily land the normal slack/whip/hook tricks I try - hidemasa hook, brent stole, brother slack, suicide, etc. There are definitely some strings that give me problems with these tricks, and some that make them easier, based on how fast/slow the string moves through the air. These are middle of the road in terms of speed through the air.
I’m going to play with these until the strings give out to allow my feelings about them to settle in.
I appreciate the soft pink color, by the way, since I have a lot of pink yoyos!
